Now more than ever, navigating the path of philanthropy has become trickier, as the sector reexamines how it can best be of service in the face of rapidly changing domestic and global landscapes. While many of the operational fundamentals that nonprofit leaders and social entrepreneurs need to know can be taught academically, the keys to philanthropic engagement are most successfully acquired from the philanthropic community. Virtual Philanthropy North brings the insights from philanthropy directly to the change agents who need them most.
ViP North offers in-depth learning sessions on donor engagement led by instructors with significant grantmaking experience. We work with institutions such as universities, fellowships, accelerators, and incubators to tailor a curriculum for the level and needs of the participants. From a two-hour course to a week-long workshop with an opportunity to be mentored by current members of philanthropy, ViP North prepares nonprofit leaders and social entrepreneurs for how to find success in the philanthropic space.
Most donors want to serve as a resource for nonprofits, but fear being overwhelmed. Virtual Philanthropy Conduit gives donors the ability to be involved in shaping the fundraising process for nonprofits without the inundation. Our entire curriculum has been formed through key advice from domestic and international donors of all sizes, as well as nonprofit feedback on what they want most to learn in the process of relationship-building.
Regardless of the size or format (virtual or in-person), each session is taught with extensive group and individual attention in order to focus on the specific problem areas of each participant. ViP North complements the lessons taught institutionally with real-world application. Every phase of relationship-building is covered.
